In the beginning:

Arguments= and Executable= were what goes in the submit file.

Args= and Cmd= were what goes in the job ad.

At some point, the quoting for Args= became problematic and they
changed Args= to Arguments= in the job ad.  It may be that a newer
Condor will only have Arguments= in the job ads, but with the 7.1
release I see both variants.

Someone from the Condor team can probably elaborate or correct me if I
am wrong.
